While I may look young in my picture, I can assure that it was taken a while ago. I've been with FrontRow's Marketing Department since 2007. My previous experience as an college instructor aligned perfectly with FrontRow's mission "to give every child a FrontRow seat." To this day, one of the things I enjoy most about my job is the chance to work with educators, visit their classrooms, and know that what we do makes a difference for them and their students.

With every job there is a component of professional development.  When you work in education, it usually means hours at the end of your teaching day, or a day off from the students, sitting in a session.  Sometimes these are really great sessions that you don't want to miss — but may have to for a variety of reasons.  

For the trainers, in the training centers, district or county offices, it takes quite a lot of coordination to ensure you have all people in attendance and that the information is disseminated clearly.

Rob Patin (talked.tv), recently tried and reviewed the Juno on his blog.  Full disclosure - we sent him the Juno - but with absolutely no strings attached.  Patin is a self-proclaimed "big fan of classroom audio systems," so all we did was send him ours to try as well.
